Marvel Plays Coy About Spider-Man

At the time of our set visit, everyone was playing dumb about Spider-Man’s involvement in Captain America: Civil War. Writers Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, executive producer Nate Moore and directors Anthony & Joe Russo weren’t sure if he would appear in the movie. Or at least they were all pretending if they weren’t sure. They didn’t know if it was going to work. For a studio that plans everything in advance, they seemed pretty clueless, but we’re betting they’re just trying to keep it a “surprise” for when they decide to reveal it.

Holding Captain America’s Shield


I’d by lying if I said this wasn’t one of the high points of my life. While on the set of Captain America: Civil War, we were allowed to hold Captain America’s shield. There were two versions that were brought over to us. One was a lighter wood version, and the other was the considerably heavier metal version. Both have a strap to fit your arm through and a handle to hold. Just holding the shield in your hands makes you feel like a superhero.

One of the prop crew members talked to us and revealed they have 90 shields from making the Captain America and Avengers movies over the years, but only 40 of them are actually usable. The rest have been battered beyond repair.

More to Come from Interviews with Team Cap and Team Iron Man

Captain America Civil War Interview

As I noted in the beginning, our set visit included interviews with stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Anthony Mackie, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen and franchise newcomer Chadwick Boseman. You can look for interviews from Team Cap members Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen and Anthony Mackie today while Robert Downey Jr. and Chadwick Boseman interviews won’t arrive until Tuesday, March 8th.

Some of these interviews will be accompanied by some words from producer Nate Moore, writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, and directors Anthony & Joe Russo to help paint a more full picture of what each of the characters brings to the table for Captain America: Civil War. Stay tuned for all this from our Captain America Civil War set visit imminently.
